Thank you very much our warm guide Hari, made our visit to Nepal one of the most enjoyable and memorable trips so far. Together with 10 members from Hong Kong we joined Life Dream Adventure Pvt for a trekking to Everest Tengboche Monastery in October 2012. We took an exciting flight to Lukla. It was fantastic scenic mountain flight provided beautiful close up of view higher Himalayan range.
We have been trekking in Nepal with OB for many years. Now we book our flights from Australia to Kathmandu and OB does the rest. He organizes any internal flights, hires the sherpas and porters, books the teahouses, ensures that we become acclimatized slowly and our wellbeing and safety is his number one priority. We would thoroughly recommend OB to anyone wishing to experience trekking in the spectacular Himalayas.
We have been trekking with Life Dream Adventure Mr.OB from Lukla to Tengboche on the EBC trek (our first trek in Nepal ever). The entire experience with Hari and OB was great from the beginning. Hari helped us in planning the entire trip - from accommodation in Kathmandu to all trek planning - and addressed all the questions and concerns we had.
“I have trekked with OB and Hari on several occasions in the Annapurna and Everest regions. They are a very professional and thoughtful team and I highly recommend them to anyone wishing to experience the beauty of Nepal.”
